The half hour battery life is also annoying (I knew this) and I hope Magellan has a fix for this.
Take this unit for a test drive to get used to all the features and you won't get frustrated on the road.
Unfortunately, our trip was greater than 30 days so I could not return it and try out one of the other units.
We have another trip in the early spring to D.C. and then cross country to California via national parks.
A updated review will follow.
Second trip I tried going from Pittsburgh to northern Virginia.product said there was no route due to road or vehicle restrictions. I used Waze on my cell phone.
Third trip it quit working just before my exit from an interstate. I finally took another exit, found a place to pull over and again used for phone .
This GPS cost more than $350 and fails to deliver.
The Getting Started guide instructs you to connect the nav to your computer via USB and log in to their site to register and update the unit. I did that. I also learned that Yelp is not loaded by default, but you can get it on the site. So, after a lot of fumbling I learned that I had to "trade" a feature for Yelp, so I deleted the web browser and told the site to send me Yelp. It took over six hours to complete that download. That really seemed excessive to me.
I told the Nav to find Cape Disappointment State Park. It had no trouble finding it in its atlas. I added it to my address brook. On the day of the trip, I used the included suction cup mount to put the unit in view over the dash. I plugged it into a utility outlet. One thing to note, you need to mount the plug on the mounting bracket. Then, when you insert the GPS unit, it is connected. I didn't realize that and had to take the mount apart to get the power cord in.
There are a number of things that Magellan doesn't tell you before you buy. It turns out that the road advisory information requires that you connect the GPS to your cell phone by Bluetooth. If you lose cell service, you lose all of the nice features like advisories and gas prices. The Magellan will use your phone's data plan to keep itself updated and download traffic advisories (most of which should have been in the unit's memory) and gas prices. Since our trip to the coast crossed many miles where there is no cell service, all we got was basic navigation.
The navigation itself is clearly very old code. The voice prompts sound just like my 2004 Prius; bad pronunciation with an artificial-sounding mechanical voice. Hearing the Magellan and the Ford nav at the same time clearly pointed out how crude the Magellan voice is. I also have a two-year-old Garmin unit (one of the less expensive) that has great sounding voice prompts.
That's not the worst part. On the way home, while driving on I5, the Magellan suddenly made an alarm bell sound and lit up with a warning that I5 was closed 45 miles ahead. It immediately displayed a detour route. That would have been fine, but when we checked the Ford navigation and XM traffic reports, there was absolutely no information about a closure. We stayed on I5. Sending serious false alarms alone takes my review to one star. But wait, there's more! Frequently while making a turn (that it told us to make), it would instantly say, "Make the next possible U-turn!". Then, it would go on with the route. What's with that?
The biggest giveaway that this unit has old code is the way it handles route changes. Both nav systems offered two possibilities to get to Cape Disappointment. There are actually three good choices. Ford and Magellan selected as the first choice I5 to US 101. We took that route a couple of years ago. It is nasty for RV's; lots of narrow spots, traffic lights, and towns along the way. I have no idea why both think it is the fastest route. The second route offered by both takes I5 to WA12 to US 101. This isn't too bad. We had tried that one too. The third route which neither system selects is I5 to WA Rt 6 to US 101. The third route we find is the easiest when towing our fifth wheel.
When we passed the exit for US101, both systems tried to get us to exit and go back to the US 101 exit. The Ford system gave up after only a few miles. The Magellan stubbornly kept trying to turn around for over 15 miles. The Ford unit figured out that WA 12 would work. It did quickly with little fuss. The Magellan kept trying to get us to turn around until we were close to the Rt. 12 exit. Then it got with that program. After we passed that exit, both systems tried to turn us around again. The Ford unit figured out we wanted Rt 6 fairly soon. The Magellan wouldn't shut up.In 2006, the Toyota nav behaved just like the Magellan. The 2014 Ford unit is much smarter.
It's clear that both units have the same digital maps. Magellan just uses old software to integrate with them. One other thing, as far as we could tell the Magellan does not take our RV into account when it offers routes. We used it after we arrived to help us find points of interest. It was very happy to route us onto small roads that say "No RV's". So much for that claim.
It does have a couple of features designed for RV drivers: It has a database of public dump stations and displays them as you drive. It also includes Good Sam campgrounds in its point of interest database. Neither feature is of any value to us. As for Yelp, most reviews are for larger towns. So, when touring on the shore, Yelp was silent.
Once coupled with your phone, it becomes a hands-free phone for you. It works very much like the Ford Sync built in Bluetooth unit. The seven inch display was excellent. It looked better than the seven inch built-in screen on the truck. It's crystal clear with very good color and resolution.
I really wanted this unit to be the missing link that would give us routing designed for our RV. It didn't. There are other RV-themed nav systems out there. I'm not sure if they offer true RV routing, but the Magellan doesn't. With its false road closure notice and very dated software, I just can't recommend this unit.
The reality is not much....it does give u sani drop stations for the rv enthusiast and camp grounds etc, but wouldn't a phone.
It gives u gas prices in ur vicinty, restaraunts, and other places you may be seeking on a trip. all of this,however, can be done with your basic phone apps.
the setup is relatively easy. the device will connect with your phone's address book and will even become your phone when in your car. I found that to be pretty cool. there is no provider setup. it connects with your phone through bluetooth.this would have been a fantastic device about a decade ago. but in this day and age, one has to wonder what demographic this is going for.I find I am using this more as a hands-free device while driving than ia an actual map. battery life is particularly short, so make sure your charger in your car works otherwise you'll only be able to use this for about 15 minutes. so does this do successfully what it says it does? the answer is yes. it provides maps to campgrounds, shops, coffee houses, restaurants, or anything else you may be looking for. it provides a safe and hands-free way of driving which I feel is the best part of this device. is it worth the price tag? with about a thousand apps that do the same exact thing for free I must say no.
